I always thought it was because the environment wasn't up to snuff to developing apps for. Atleast that's what I hear. Jonathan Blow wanted to port Braid to Linux and asked for help with Linux Sound APIs. All he got was flak for his company being a Windows based developer.

I also read that Macs were being looked at for development.
